Jobs Plus Program Manager

I have recently accepted the role of the Jobs Plus Manager. I joined Rockford Housing Authority in January of 2022 as an Employment Specialist for the Jobs Plus program.

I am no stranger to the community. I have 10+ years of experience in the human services field. For the last few years, I have worked in our local workforce development system alongside persons with disabilities and low-income populations to achieve their self-sufficiency goals. I have worked with individuals from all walks of life.

My goal/mission has always been to provide individuals with barriers with the resources needed to succeed. I am passionate about serving my community and being an advocate for individuals in need. And for that reason, I will work diligently to ensure that everyone in my path will have access to the resources they NEED to achieve their goals.

I have three beautiful children whom I adore and an amazing partner that supports my ambitions. I have lived in Rockford my whole life and love my COMMUNITY!  I believe that we all need someone that believes in us. I live by this saying, “See me NOW! See me LATER! See me Greater!”
